No... you blow off all meetings, say you are working from home and then show up three days later with a solution and look like a winner. That way they say 'leave him alone and don't bug him' and have everything run through a project manager. :) Of course there is blow back when a C-level gets involved

+ - WSO2 Starts War Over Who Owns API Chaining 1

Submitted by Foofoobar
Foofoobar (318279) writes "WSO2 is refusing to budge saying (in the words of the CEO): 'API Chaining is not a set of words trade marked by you. We are free to use it any way we want' after creator of API Chaining, Owen Rubel, asked them to stop promoting their work as his own. This has led to an exchange on public forums with their CTO Paul Fremantle publicly stating they will not honor the Apache License that the works is released and copyrighted under."

+ - Ask Slashdot: Can A Confusing Article Ruin Early Adoption? 1

Submitted by Foofoobar
Foofoobar (318279) writes ""I have spent the last year or more working on API Abstraction and API Chaining and speaking on it at SpringOne, APIDays, Apple, Mashery, Paypal and others. Recently I discovered an article by a company about API Chaining which I thought was flattering but upon reading it, realized they did't understand the concept at all and were writing about 'method chaining' instead. This can affect my ability to evangelize this new methodology if people confuse these two.

Do you think a bad article could confuse people? What can I do about this?""

+ - ISPs Violating Net Neutrality to block encryption->

Submitted by Dupple
Dupple (1016592) writes "One of the most frequent refrains from the big broadband players and their friends who are fighting against net neutrality rules is that there's no evidence that ISPs have been abusing a lack of net neutrality rules in the past, so why would they start now? That does ignore multiple instances of violations in the past, but in combing through the comments submitted to the FCC concerning net neutrality, we came across one very interesting one that actually makes some rather stunning revelations about the ways in which ISPs are currently violating net neutrality/open internet principles in a way designed to block encryption and thus make everyone a lot less secure"

Submitted by Foofoobar
Foofoobar (318279) writes "Apparently all the REAL innovation in the technology sector these days is in marketing as now IT departments are being told to leave innovation to marketing, accounting and sales. While Marketing is outspending IT departments, does this necessarily mean that the innovation comes from them or that this is a marketing driven culture now?"

Submitted by Foofoobar
Foofoobar (318279) writes "The Grails Api Toolkit offers a new feature called Api Chaining. Api Chaining is a fluent interface that offers the ability to chain api calls by url encoding them and allowing the response to loop through them. An online spec for this new api functionality is online. Reviews from the Api development community are positive but what do you think?"

For those who love how Groovy/Grails makes Java less verbose and its convention over configuration approach, I highly recommend Griffon. It can work with Swing, AWT, QT or whatever you want to use and is very clean, simple and easy to understand and is based on tried and true technologies and libraries.

I never made a decision for them. You are making a decison for them when you force it down their throat by installing it on their phone. You make a decision for people when you shove it in their mailbox, or put a pamphlet on their car. Now you make that decision to put in on their phone. I merely say 'let people come to their own conclusions on their own and ask their own questions'. You seem to think people need to have every religion shoved in their face.

Isn't atheism/agnosticism/secular humanism an answer too? in which case. why are you shoving all this other nonsense in their face? They already have a conclusion and you are assuming you need to force yours on them.It is best to assume your anser is right for you and let others come to their own PERSONAL answer.

How is that a false premise? All scientific proofs, arguments, evidence cannot show the existence of a deity and as akhams ravor clearly states, the simplest explanation is often the clearest solution. Religion is self proving and therefore self defeating. Science at least is object in its puruit of truth so it can find real answers whereas religious has no ability to be objective; at the end of the day if they find god does not exist, god will STILL exist.
